Sentimental Sunday: Bay Bridge Youth go to League Park

In the photo above is a group of young men heading off to a Cleveland Indians baseball game in 1939. At that time the Indians played at League Park.

Peeking out of the first window on the left are:

Don Orshoski
Wayne Orshoski
Rolland Orshoski

Don and Wayne were sons of Steve and Emma (Yeager) Orshoski, and their cousin Rolland was the son of Frank and Dallas Orshoski. All three Orshoski boys lived in Bay Bridge in 1939.

While it appears that many of the youngsters were residents of Margaretta Township in Erie County, the bus that transported them was owned by the Perkins Township School District.

Rolland Orshoski died on September 11, 1999, and he is buried at the Castalia Cemetery. Wayne Orshoski died on September 8, 2003. Don Orshoski passed away on May 19, 2007. Both Don and Wayne Orshoski are buried in Huron, Ohio at Meadow Green Memorial Park.
